“Evil incarnated” were the words Imam Ali Saddiqui used to describe Senator Jeff Sessions while speaking at a protest against the senator’s nomination to the post of Attorney General.
“I’m telling you my personal experience, I have met [Senator Sessions], I have talked with him and his pastor. He is evil incarnated,” Saddiqui said.
“Senator Jeff Sessions is no good for the nation,” Saddiqui read as the crowd repeated his words after each phrase. Saddiqui and the crowd also vowed not to “move to Canada.”
Saddiqui sparked controversy in 2007 when he said in an interview with The Muslim Observer that the attacks of September 11th had a “silver lining” that brought Muslims and issues important to Islam into the American conversation.
“The tragedy of 9-11 also became a silver lining and it created an interest in Islam and Muslims,” Saddiqui said.
More recently, Saddiqui participated in a controversy surrounding a 2013 Coca-Cola ad, which had the audacity to depict a traditional Arab man in its commercial.
“The Coke commercial for the Super Bowl is racist, portraying Arabs as backward and foolish Camel Jockeys, and they have no chance to win in the world,” he said at the time.
